Most Helpful Positive Review My Favorite Foundation...EVER!!!
For years I was searching for a foundation that actually matched me and I found this a little over a year ago and I fell IN LOVE with it! It's so pigmented and just lays beautifully on every skin color (I also work for Ulta so I shade match this A LOT). My recommendation for primers would be the Hangover primer by Too Faced because I will tell you one thing: if you have really dry skin like I do, this foundation MUST have a moisturizing primer. Like seriously moisturizing. No serums or primers with silicone. For starters, it doesn't stick well with silicones and honestly, most silicone primers aren't good because they give your makeup a perfect surface to slip off of. Because of this foundation's matte finish and drying effect, having a moisturizing primer, even if your skin tends to be on the combination to slightly oily side, it helps counteract the matte finish and gives you a full coverage matte look without a cakey feeling or the scaling dry skin effect. Also, this foundation will work as a more natural foundation with very little product. For full coverage, maybe three pumps. But I used to use four and that was too much and I ended up wasting product. For a light look, no more than one and a half. And even that can be too much because it really is meant to be full coverage. But if you are looking for something that can be somewhat of an in between, this will work for you. And lastly, set it with powder! If you want it to last, it will if you use a moisturizing primer (if your oily and have big pores, Benefit's Porefessional works wonders. It's not super moisturizing so it might do you good to combine the Hangover and Porefessional because again, YOU NEED A MOISTURIZING PRIMER) and a good setting powder. I personally like the Dermablend translucent loose setting powder, but for those with beautiful dark complexions, I recommend the Cover FX loose setting powder. But starting off well and ending well will make this foundation work like a dream on your skin!
Most Helpful Critical Review Still disappointed....why try to fix what wasn't broken?
After a few months of giving the Teint Idole Ultra 24H a chance, I'm still just as upset as the first time I tried it - this foundation is a disaster. I am a long time devoted wearer of the previous, perfect Teint Idole 14 Hour formula. The prior 14 hour formula was absolutely fantastic, I'd never experienced a more perfect foundation, the holy grail. It provided flawless, full coverage that somehow felt light yet covered my large pores. I was astounded when Lancome replaced it with this horrific 24Hour spackle that doesn't even resemble the prior formula. This 24 Hour foundation is heavy, sticky, sinks into pores and emphasizes them, and what's most startling is that it doesn't last as long as the 14 H formula! It is more difficult to blend even after trying different methods, it makes no difference, it's not even comparable to the prior formula. I tried several different shades to most closely match my beloved 14 H and found one that was fine. But this new 24H formula is so disappointing, my face just doesnt look the same. Ok, seems a little silly to be so frustrated about a foundation, but truly this new formula took away a foundation that was tried, true, and dependable. Now my search continues and I will have to look beyond Lancome. PLEASE bring back the previous formula that , from other reviews, apparently many, many other women dearly miss as well!

I used to be a huge fan of EL Double wear. The coverage, the longevity, and the finish was amazing, but every time I wore it, id get little bumps on my skin. I tried drugstore foundations as a substitute, but my skin didn't react well to even the TOP rated ones. I looked up the best foundations for sensitive skin and this was on the list. I was skeptical, because I've never tried the brand, but it was EVERYTHING I needed and more. I paired this with the purple primer from Becca and it made my skin look smooth and matte (not the dry looking matte), while lasting all night. Definitely impressed, and now I want to try the concealer!
I Love this Foundation
Kristine from Lemoore
I love the coverage
My FAVORITE foundation
Danielle from Indianapolis
This is very lightweight so it doesn't feel heavy on your face. There are a ton of colors ensuring you find your perfect match. Also as a bonus it has an SPF in it! My favorite foundation by far.
Bella from Utah
I have used this foundation for as long as I can remember! It is the one that I love!❣️It lasts all day, pretty🎀matte, good coverage w/o the cake, + on natural makeup days, I use this foundation as an under eye concealer!🥳
Okay, now for ways I think they could improve. The spf oxidizes the foundation, me no likey :( I think that spf should be up to the user, as it does affect the product. Personally, I think letting an spf day cream that sinks into your face while eating breakfast, then applying primer as a buffer, then spf free foundation would make the color look better + not tinge. Win win! Second, I wear the color 220 buff c. The color used to be more yellow, and then was made more pink. Frustrating as I am a cool yellow (yes lol) and if I have to choose between warm yellow or cool pink, the cool color always harmonizes better bc everything else on me is very cool + ashy. I make it work, it's not straight up pink. And 3rd, I think the future of concealers is *lightweight* yet full coverage. So if they could put out a consistency like this foundation with a bit more coverage, it could up sales. They are probs way rich anyway, but just my opinions.
Anyway :) I have never strayed from this foundation!! I've tried other ones, but this one just works for me. Thanks!😘

Love love this foundation. I can wear it up to 16 hrs and still look fresh. I have super oily skin, but it makes my skin look so amazing.
I would buy this again
Abby from Irving,Tx
Would definitely recommend I love it it's the exact same shade as me 👍
The best foundation hands down
Jenna from New Jersey
God. I've been through so many foundations it's not even funny. I have combo textured skin. This foundation lays down so beautifully and it looks so natural yet covers you. Use it with the milk makeup hydro grip primer. Thank me later
Wanted to love
Katie from springfield, IL
I will buy this product again!
Kimmy from Gainesville, Fl
This foundation blends in the skin beautifully & doesn't look like you're wearing too much foundation. The coverage is great & for the most part, it holds up really well. If you cry or sweat just a little too much, you might have to touch it up, but the touch up is minimal!
Not a natural looking finish
Katie in California from Sacramento, CA
I purchased numerous colors in this foundation. I had really wanted to like this but for some reason, it just doesn't look natural on my skin. It's difficult to work with and doesn't blend that well if you wait too long to blend. It settled into my lines under my eyes and places on my face I didn't realize I had lines.

I have terrible skin - uneven tone, redness and sun damage. My skin is very oily, but can also turn dry in a flash. The humidity here in FL also means that it is dang near impossible to find a foundation that will stay put all day. This foundation may not stay for 24 hours, but it is the best I've found, by far. I've tried several others and for a while I was using KVD lock it foundation. I like the Lancôme finish much better - it doesn't look quite so flat. It covers well but not quite as full as the KVD, so the final look is a little more natural. I also tried Born This Way because the You Tubers seem to swear by it. No matter how much primer, powder or setting spray I use, I just cannot get that stuff to stick. Plus, it seems to dry my skin out - flakes seem to appear magically. I don't have that same problem with the Lancôme. It's definitely not drying and the UD All Nighter setting spray seems to do a good job of holding it in place.
Anna from Dallas, Texas
I have a very oily skin and acne prone skin. This product is not what it said. It is not full coverage. No coverage at all for acne prone skin.
Lina from New York, NY
I use this foundation in the summer time because it has such a beautiful finish. I have combo skin and this foundation doesn't cling to dry patches or doesn't get oily on me. In the summer months it will last me all day long. It also looks beautiful in photos and mixes well with other foundation. I prefer mixing foundations together and my favorite combo is this and the Estee double wear.
I would buy this again and again

Little pricey but well worth it
Doesn't sink into wrinkles!
Katie from Apple Valley, CA
I'm at a stage in life where I still get breakouts but I'm also starting to get wrinkles around my eyes. I used IT cc cream for a few years now and it started looking cakey by the end of the day and making my eye wrinkles look much more noticeable. I felt like i looked younger without any make up at all. I had an associate help me narrow down which foundation would work best for my needs. We did our best to color match without being able to test on my skin and i just decided to trust her. She did great!! The color is perfect and it is SO smooth. It lasts all day and looks airbrushed. I finish with the Laura Mercier translucent powder to set, and that's a 10/10 for me as well. I love this combo and will absolutely keep purchasing.
I definitely love using this product.

Adjust your coverage
Kikiyaya from Lebanon, NY
I've tried quite a few foundations in my 50+ yrs. This is my favorite for my lifestyle. I can use one application for my everyday needs then add another if heading out for a fancier engagement. So light to full coverage in one product. Waalaa! I use primer and apply with a sponge. I keep 2 shades available, summer/winter, and mix them for spring/fall. IGreat product!
I use this also a lot and love it.
Daney from Tulsa, OK
I use it a lot and it really works well on your face and looks great.
I love this product and buy it when I use it all.

I use it every day and I love how it looks when you put it on.
Wow was surprised
Meekee5 from Walla walla, wa
So I have issues with foundation. My face is so dry that it turns oily cause Yaknow my face is rude. Anyways I've tried so so so many brands and different price points. Finally I tried this product and wow. Just wow. It doesn't give me the same problems as all other foundations have. The price kinda hurts a little but SOOOOOO worth it. Foundation always cracks around my face and sinks into my pores and rubs off through the day. But this one I actually fell asleep in (I know you're not supposed to I didn't mean for it to happen) I woke up. Some smudged off but it still look really nice. Definitely gonna keep buy. Oh and they had a color that worked so well for me. I'm super pale but not pale enough for the lightest shade in most colors so I have to buy two bottles and mix my own color. But not with this product.
Best makeup ever!
Modine from Bonita Springs Florida
This is my favorite makeup ever. Worth every penny! I look fabulous with it on and it stays on all day.
Beauty_lover1 from IL
2nd time purchasing this foundation and it is natural,medium-coverage. Works well on my dry skin, just make sure you use hydrating skin care products prior. I always get lots of compliments when I use this. I prefer using a brush to apply instead of a beauty blender, as that sheers it out. Color match is great and it's long lasting(wear time).
My forever foundation
Meryl from Minneapolis mn
I use this with a damp beauty blender, 1 pump is more then enough for a full face. Make sure to set it with powder though! Love it to wear when I work with a mask on
